Collegiate Readership Program adopted


The School of Communications will continue to feature free issues of the New York Times, USA Today, the Greensboro News & Record and the Burlington Times-News in the front lobby on weekdays.

The program is designed to encourage the habit of daily newspaper reading among young people. Those who pick up the papers are encouraged to share them with friends and colleagues. Used papers can be recycled by depositing them in a marked bin located near the newsracks; USA Today takes care of the recycling of the papers.

The Collegiate Readership Program is now operating at more than 180 schools including George Washington University, Miami University, Penn State and the Ohio State University.

USA Today anticipates that 16.5 million newspapers are read annually by university students as a result of the program.

The papers had been offered on a trial basis during September. Because this test was an overwhelming success, the program will be continued through the winter term and spring semester.
